New Intersections Self-Guided Ride Coming Soon
Our rides in the Intersections Series range from 12-30 miles and are for riders comfortable sharing the road with traffic and feature content that delves deeper into the history of Los Angeles. These rides focus on content viewed from an intersectional lens. Intersectionality is a theory credited to lawyer and leading scholar of critical race theory, Kimberlé Williams Crenshaw.
Intersectionality is the theory of how overlapping or intersecting social identities relate to systems and strucutres of oppression, domination, or discrimination. Our upcoming ride looks at labor in the Harbor/San Pedro area. Coming soon!
